It used to be the age of 21 but in recent years they brought the age up to the mid twenties, even close to the age of 30. Makes you wonder whether the legal drinking age, as well as access to driver's licences should be increased.

Unfortunately, I'll have to disagree dollys gramma.

I have great interest in this topic since, as a teacher and childcare professional, I studied this issue in university and I specialize in working with children who have developmental issues, so as you can understand, it is something I am very familiar with. In fact, the principal at our school brought this up at one of our meetings because it affects the way we, as teachers, teach and assess our students.

Here's a great article related to this interesting fact. It's a fascinating read:

I do invite you to share anything that you've read related to this topic. The more information, the better!

Have a great day! :)

Good for you but that's news to me. I also have had extensive knowledge with children, attended University, worked in psychiatrics etc. Back not too long ago it was 21. Things do change. Appreciate your input. We both are very familiar with this topic. Glad you enlightened us all on this, very interesting to know.

That's ok dollys gramma. We're here to take part in a healthy discussion and to learn at the same time and it's a great platform to learn from and with each other. I'm really glad you also worked with children. It's an amazing and rewarding profession to be in! You're also absolutely right. The initial age was 21, which is probably why the governments chose 18-21 as legal driving and drinking ages to begin with. I'm actually surprised they haven't revised this since the new results came out. It would be interesting to see whether road accidents decrease after this new cut off point to see whether there is a correlation.
